Bill Analysis

SB 1113 would allow the the secretary of state to withhold certain funds from a voter registrar who fails to timely perform the registrar's duty to cancel the registration of ineligible voters.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports SB 1113 on the principle of limited government. It is within the proper scope of limited government to maintain accurate voter rolls in order to ensure the integrity of elections by preventing votes from being cast by ineligible people, such as those who may still be registered to vote in a county they are no longer a resident of.
